Hi, does anybody have any recommendations of favorite shows from Merl and Jerry? Really outstanding shows. Top 10 stuff. I've heard a few and I would like to hear more but I'm kind of at a loss of at where I should start. Thanks for the kind help.

I don't know the range in dates available, and Arbuthnot would be the guy to chime in here, but from all accounts of those that were there, at least in the Bay Area, Keystone in particular, 73, as noted above, is THE year.

That's my only input, sorry.

howdy WillT., not sure i can add much, altho i'll agree on the Homers Warehouse shows mentioned above, '73 IS good, preferably the post-Fulcher shows; and don't skip '72, some fantastic jams to be heard, i listen to 1/19/72 quite a lot, it's short but sweet, in a good way of course; and probably one of my favourite Jerry/Merl shows is 6/30/72, absolutely amazing, in fact everytime i even think about it i've got to listen to it

my most-likely-to-remain-unfulfilled wish is that all those Keystone Korner shows from March '72 suddenly surface one day

Hey Arb--good to see you; many of old timers don't seem to appear as often as in the past, but think of your kindness often. I know that credenza never did materialize, and hope you appreciate that I just knew the local northeastern postal workers would've dismantled whatever I'd tried to send anyhow...

In my mind, you can't beat the Legion of Mary stuff from spring '75, especially May and June. There are pristine audience recordings of those shows too. It's all great. Those are my favorites.

I'm listening to the 5/21/75 LOM aud from Menke right now. The sound is only matched by the ridiculous playing.
Good call on the May shows.
